Project Grants support public humanities projects that benefit and engage Massachusetts residents. A project can take almost any form, as long as it engages audiences with the humanities and has a meaningful impact on the communities in which it takes place. Projects need to involve a collaboration with at least one humanities scholar, who works in a relevant discipline and contributes to the project.
Formats include but are not limited to:
- Humanities-based discussions, civic conversations, and lectures
- Documentary films (pre-production and distribution)
- Exhibit planning, installation, and programming
- Oral histories
- Interactive websites and digital storytelling
- Professional development workshops for teachers
- Programs for K-12 youth
All nonprofit, educational institutions and government organizations that serve Massachusetts residents are eligible to apply.
